I thought you might want to know. Here is some basic text:

The Practice of Scientology

Within the vast amount of data which is the religious Philosophy of Scientology here are many principles which, when learned, give one a new and broader view of life. cientology as a philosophical system contains many data one can use to think with. Knowing the Tone Scale, for instance, a person can see how best to deal with a grumpy child, mollify an upset friend or get an idea across to a staid employer. Theseprinciples amount to a huge area of observation in the humanities. The data exists for a person to think with, to work with, to wonder with, to accept or reject as he wishes. It is a body of knowledge there for the learning. There is nothing authoritarian in it. It is valuable purely as a body of knowledge. From this body of wisdom the second division of Scientology – the applied philosophy – is derived. And the extraordinary achievement of Dianetics and Scientology has been the development of exact, precise methods to increase man’s awareness and capabilities. Other efforts along this line achieved only sporadic or temporary results – if any. Using Scientology, invariable improvements can be obtained when exactly applied. The importance of application in Scientology comes from the fact that L. Ron Hubbard developed as part of his philosophy an actual technology with which his discoveries could be used to effect improvement in people. Technology means the methods of application of the principles of something, as opposed to mere knowledge of the thing itself. And, using L. Ron Hubbard’s technology, applying the methods, one can heighten his perceptions and awareness, increase his abilities and lead a better, more fulfilling life. In short, one can be unhindered by others’ ideas that man cannot change and that one can be no better than he was born to be.

Throughout the remainder of this site the term technology is used with regard to the application of Scientology principles. Many technologies are extant today, technologies to build bridges and technologies to fire rockets into space. But with the work of L. Ron Hubbard, for the first time there exists a provenly workable technology to improve the functions of the mind and rehabilitate the potentials of the spirit. This is auditing.

Although the purely philosophical aspects of L. Ron Hubbard’s work are sufficient in themselves to elevate this civilization, only auditing provides a precise path by which any individual may walk an exact route to higher states of awareness. The goal of auditing is to restore beingness and ability. This is accomplished by (1) helping the individual rid himself of any disabilities and (2) increasing individual abilities. Obviously, both are necessary for an individual to achieve full potential. Auditing, then, deletes those things which have been added to the person’s reactive mind through life’s painful experiences and, as well, addresses and improves the person’s ability to confront and handle the factors in his life.

Scientology auditing could be described as a very unique form of personal counseling which helps an individual look at his own existence and improves his ability to confront what he is and where he is. There are vast differences between the technology of auditing and other forms of counseling. There is no use of hypnosis, trance techniques or drugs during auditing. The person being audited is completely aware of everything that happens. Auditing is a precise, thoroughly codified activity with exact procedures. A person trained and qualified in applying auditing to individuals for their betterment is called an auditor. Auditor is defined as one who listens, from the Latin audire meaning to hear or listen. An auditor is a minister or minister-in-training of the Church of Scientology. A person receiving auditing is called a preclear – from pre-Clear, a person not yet Clear. A preclear is a person who, through auditing, is finding out more about himself and life. The period of time during which an auditor audits a preclear is called an auditing session. A session is conducted at an agreed-upon time established by the auditor and preclear. Auditing uses processes – exact sets of questions asked or directions given by an auditor to help a person find out things about himself and improve his condition. There are many, many different auditing processes, and each one improves the individual’s ability to confront and handle part of his existence. When the specific objective of any one process is attained, the process is ended and another can then be run to address a different part of the person’s life. An unlimited number of questions could of course, be asked – which might or might not help a person. The accomplishment in Dianetics and Scientology is that L. Ron Hubbard isolated the exact questions and directions to invariably bring about improvement. The questions or directions of the process guide the person to inspect a certain part of his existence and what is found will naturally vary from person to person, since everyone’s experiences are different. Regardless of experience or background, however, the individual is assisted in locating not only areas of upset or difficulty in his life, but in locating the source of the upset. By doing this, any person is able to free himself of unwanted barriers that inhibit, stop or blunt his natural abilities and increase these abilities so that he becomes brighter and more able. There are no variables in the technology of auditing. No random results or haphazard applications. Auditing is not a period of vague free association. Each process is exact in its design and in its application, and attains a definite result when correctly administered.

Scientology auditing can bring any person from a condition of spiritual blindness to the brilliant joy of spiritual existence.

And – it works!
